Attraction Refresh: Which One, How, and Why?

Hey everyone, I'm Mike, and she's Sophie, and We're on the Road with Mickey! This is episode #46 for November 16, 2020, and our feature topic today is Attraction Refresh: Which One, How, and Why? Grab a drink, relax, and join us as we talk about all the great things that we just can't wait to reopen! Here's our rundown of what we talked about:

* Cheddar from the Big Cheese* Mike: Tonight after park closes, the Magic Kingdom will be testing fireworks! Yay!* Sophie: Are you going to attend the 2021 Epcot International Festival of the Arts? If you are great news! Voices of Liberty will be returning and performing a brand new showcase called “The Disney Songbook” at the American Gardens Theatre!* Sophie: We already talked about how Cinderella Castle has the new holiday overlays on the Castle after dark. Well, over at Hollywood Studios, the same is happening at the Hollywood Tower Hotel -- site of the Tower of Terror. You can see these overlays over on Instagram. I can’t wait to see them myself! https://www.instagram.com/p/CHY8RwZFBPK/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading* Mike: Disney is going to be updating the disneygiftcard.com website, which you can use to store your Disney Gift Cards on. The key, though, is with the update, ALL of the accounts already on the site will be wiped out, so if you have an account with some balances on cards, you need to make sure you have those cards on hand. That will all be happening on January 19, 2021, so make plans now if this applies to you!* Connect with us!
